Born in remote sandhill country, Pike (c.1940-2002) spent his nomadic childhood moving with family between waterholes that defined country and its ancient culture hat inspire his work. Part of the great exodus of desert people in the ‘40s and ‘50s, he moved into the Kimberley to work on cattle stations. He discovered his talent for art in 1981, painting at an isolated desert camp. He is represented in the collections of all major Australian public galleries.
